Crete

The offspring of three continents and the nesting place of ancient civilizations

It emerged from the Tethys Ocean millions of years ago to evolve by tectonic forces into the Aegis continent which by continuous submersion into and rise from the ocean evolved into the fragmented ensemble of the charming Aegean Sea. Although a dot on the map, Crete boasts as the place that gave birth to and nurtured Zeus, the father of gods and people. Moreover, it is the birthplace of the Minoan civilization.

The restless geopolitical background of Crete is the cause of its charm, manifested in successive changes of the physical environment as one drives along the island from one end to the other!

Crete is an island to flavour and experience...

The harmony of contradictions

It embraces the Sea of Crete and the Libyan Sea; while the scattered small islands around it are mere hints of the outstanding beauty that wandering along its coasts and through the mainland promises to offer.

The three main mountains -Dikti, Psiloritis and Lefka Ori (White Mountains)- with their deep, trackless ravines, rough gorges, valleys and plateaus shape the island’s destiny.

An island of 8,332 km2, where the imposing, wild and mountainous landscape harmoniously co-exists with overgrown cultivated slopes, silver olive groves, unending hectares of vineyards, plains with thimbleweeds and sheep sorrels and the relentlessly incandescent reign of stone, that smells of labdanum and imposes itself with inexorable simplicity, plunged in deep blue, can only be a gift of God.
